How many 3 digit numbers are divisible by 6 in all ?
149
150
151
166
Answer: Option
Explanation:

Required numbers are 102, 108, 114, ... , 996

This is an A.P. in which a = 102, d = 6 and l = 996

Let the number of terms be n. Then,

a + (n - 1)d = 996

   102 + (n - 1) x 6 = 996

   6 x (n - 1) = 894

   (n - 1) = 149

   n = 150.

A 3-digit number 4a3 is added to another 3-digit number 984 to give a 4-digit number 13b7, which is divisible by 11. Then, (a + b) = ?
10
11
12
15
Answer: Option
Explanation:
 4 a 3  |
 9 8 4  }  ==> a + 8 = b  ==>  b - a = 8  
13 b 7  |

Also, 13 b7 is divisible by 11      (7 + 3) - (b + 1) = (9 - b)

  (9 - b) = 0

  b = 9

(b = 9 and a = 1)     (a + b) = 10.
